Looking for ways to spice up your KTV evenings? Dongguan officials say People’s Daily would be the perfect ingredient.

KTVs, hotels and internet cafes in Dongguan’s Tangsha town are now required to subscribe party publications such as People’s Daily, Dongguang Daily and Truth Seeking magazine.

The new policy says every hotel room should receive a copy of Dongguan Daily.

The announcement has drawn thousands of online posts criticising and mocking the rule.

“Do we expect prostitutes to read People’s Daily now?” said a Sina Weibo user.

Dongguan’s sleazy salons and hotels have been known to provide illegal erotic services.

“We finally have toilet paper in our hotels now,” said another Weibo user.

Perhaps it’s a kind reminder to officials who frequent Dongguan’s hotels: don’t have too much fun.
